This is one of a collection of posts I’ve written recently to provide a high-level introduction to all of the products and services available within a Rackspace Cloud Account. I like to think of them as the building blocks of the Internet. Each post will give a description of the product, how to use it, the costs and the most frequently asked questions about that product.
Cloud Load Balancers is continuing to grow its footprint by providing valuable features to our growing customer base. In recent months, Cloud Load Balancers has added several customer requested features including SSL Termination at the load balancer, secondary backend node options, metadata support and a growing list of supported protocols. Rackspace is proud to announce that we have added three more features to Cloud Load Balancers that are available today via the API. These new features will be offered in the control panel very soon.
